    Modified Euro Premium

    Double Twist dressed in a piece of Spalted Elm.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with Super Fine Steel Wool and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Gloss Polyurethane.
    No buffing or polishing required on the finish.
    Had to machine down the Twist Holder Flange.

    You're on a roll with these one-piece pens, Les. This one is another beauty, for sure.

    Les, Your work is making me reconsider making pens. I swore i wouldn't go down that path but now ...I don't know...

    Thanks Michael,

    To extend and retract the refill you just twist the nib.
    Pull on the nib to change the refill.
